Subject: subtitles in SRT UTF-8 with BOM considered invalid
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 413b
If I give a file in SRT format with UTF-8 character encoding with the BOM (0xEF, 0xBB, 0xBF) at the start of the file to "subs", it yields an error: {{{ Error loading '...':Invalid line numbering at line 1 }}} If I delete the BOM, the error is gone. According to , the Unicode Standard does permit the BOM in UTF-8. "subs" should read subtitles in UTF-8 with the BOM.
Please check the patch, it works for me but I need the proof.
